    2012 Northern California Westsail Rendezvous at San Leandro Yacht Club September 28-30 will feature SLYC Commodore Norm Pennington.  He will be speaking on the increased capabilities of the newer VHF radios with DSC  as well as GPS lat lon all tied into emergency radio transmissions to the Coast Guards Rescue 21 radio network.    

    Commodore Pennington is an instructor with the US Power Squadron and regularly speaks to the local boating community. 

    For those of you who have the VHF radios with the "red" flip door and button - we may have time to help you understand your radio and gps instructions but you will need your MMSI number from Boat US  and a few others for domestic use - for international cruisers you will need a FCC license and MMSI number.
    Besure to sign up if you plan on attending our event... all are welcome.
